>> thank you for starting your day and week with us. we start with a fox news alert. a u.s. base coming under attack from homicide bombers. this led to a fierce gun battle but nato says there are no american casualties. >> it happened near the border with pakistan. the taliban claiming responsibility for the attack. a main highway used for nato supply trucks is being shut down because of the attack. >> another fox news alert for you. new details about the crisis in syria. the president's inner circle floods the zone trying to gain congressional support for a military strike. this as syria mocks the white house calling president obama's decision to take his finger off the trigger a historic american retreat. and while you were sleeping, this, a nuclear weapon carrier group rerouted. we're live in washington with the latest for us.
>> good morning heather. good morning, ainsley. the possibility of a military strike against syria and the pending vote in congress headlined the sunday talk shows. the top news maker secretary of state john kerry presenting new evidence that chemical weapons were used last month in syria. >> the fact is that yesterday we have now learned that hair and blood samples that have come to us from east damascus from individuals who were engaged as first responders in east damascus, i can report to you today they have tested positive for signatures of sarin. >> a very deadly nerve gas. but the president's critics were also front and center. here's james inhofe. >> if you're going to say something, you've got to back it up. and this president clearly has retreated from the position that he took not just in the last couple of days but about a week ago when he talked about the red line. >> then a classified briefing from national
security officials for both houses of congress. about 83 members attended and came out with a variety of actions. here are just two. >> a great deal of skepticism in the room about the utility, effectiveness and support that we would have for the kind of strike the president proposed. >> i think even the president's strongest defenders would acknowledge this has hardly been a work of art. we sort of stumbled into this commitment. >> president obama invited john mccain to the white house today hoping to win his backing for a limited strike on syria. back to you. >> thank you. >> the world waits to see if congress will vote yes to striking syria, and many are taking a look at u.s. history for a clue on how congress might vote. our fox news correspondent is in washington with a look into the past to see what we could expect. >> americans are waiting to see if congress will support president obama's request to attack syria.
at the same time it's hard not to look at administrations past and what retaliations took place. starting 30 years ago the u.s. bombed beirut under the reagan administration. one month later shiite muslim suicide bombers struck marine barracks and more than 200 marines were killed. years later a bombing raid in libya. muammar qaddafi survived and admitted his involvement in the pan am plane explosion in scotland. officials ordered an attack in a factory from sudan. the radical group attacked, followed by the deadly september attacks in 2001. these are incidents weighing on this administration's strategy which right now has no time line. >> the rationale for the military response the
president has requested is as powerful today and will be as powerful, if not more powerful, each day. >> some lawmakers say we can keep u.s. national security strong if an attack is done correctly and with proper international cooperation. >> every time the united states has acted stkpaoeu civilly there is -- decisively there is no retaliation. >> while many of these lawmakers are outspoken for a full debate before any u.s. action is taking place that doesn't mean they are on board with an attack. >> a head-on crash kills six people, including two children, in rural northwestern pennsylvania. this is what is left of the vehicles involved. police say the s.u.v. crossed the center line. the driver's 12-year-old daughter and 6-year-old nephew were killed as well as four other people in the vehicle. this morning a manhunt underway for the killer of
a one-year-old little boy. he was shot dead last night in brooklyn. someone fired multiple shots as he was being pushed in a stroller. the bullet hit that child in the head and the boy's father believed to be the intended target. >> a father was visiting his child, spending time with his kid. apparently a person that had a beef with his brother saw him and decided that was the perfect opportunity to shoot at him which was not because the one-year-old was hit in the melee. >> another day, another bombshell about who the n.s.a. spied on. you can now add the presidents of brazil and mexico to the list. that's according to glenn green walled. he says the n.s.a. spied on e-mails and on-line chats for both leaders. >> right now an 11-alarm fire is burning at a new jersey warehouse. you can see the video here. officials say it won't be
under control for a long time. more than 200 fire fighters are battling the flames. the fire broke out around 2:00 sunday afternoon and the smoke could be seen as far as 20 miles away. >> no one was injured. no employees were in the building. and that is the only thing that's important. >> it's devastating to see knowing how many people work there, how large a facility it is, how important they are to the town. >> the fire officials are bringing in an expert to figure out how to put out the fire. no word on what started it. >> it looks like one direction is heading in the right direction. right now the boy band's concert documentary is winning the holiday weekend box office race with $17 million. but "the butler" is not far behind at nearly $15 million and could come out the weekend winner. if so, the lee daniels historical drama about a white house butler could become the first film of
2013 to hold the top spot for three weekends in a row. >> a musical festival cut short. investigators think a drug might be to blame. heather nauert is here with the latest. >> this drug is also known as ecstasy. believed to have caused two deaths. at the electric zoo music festival. tens of thousands flocked to the big apple for this party. it features five stages and popular deejays, but the fun turned into tragedy on saturday. a college student from providence, rhode island, was pronounced dead after she was rushed to a hop on saturday -- to a hospital on saturday night. police say a 23-year-old of rochester, new york, who graduated last year from syracuse university died early sunday morning. city officials say the deaths appear to be related to the drug molly, supposed
to be a pure form of ecstasy or mdma. >> if you're taking this drug on a hot day you're going to become dehydrated, you may have con srugss, may get a heart attack and may get a stroke. >> a former homicide detective and fox news contributor was on tpobgz and friends and -- "fox & friends" and talked about the dangers of this drug. he has warnings for parents whose kids may be taking that drug. >> what you want to say specifically is have you hung out with molly? do you know molly? look at the pupils, the eyes. you'll notice the pupils are somewhat dilated. you'll see sweating. the real give-away is the teenager will need to eat a lot of candy because molly has a tendency to take the sugar out of the body. it is very important that parents have this discussion today with their
kids. >> these festivals is become increasingly popular among young people these days. city officials say at least four other people are in intensive care this morning from suspected drug overdouses. the nypd says more than 30 people arrested mostly on drug related charges at this festival over the weekend. ainsley? >> thank you so much heather. ousted egyptian president mohamed morsi will be put on trial charged with inciting violence while he was in office. prosecutors will try him and other top muslim brotherhood officials for their role in the killing of at least ten people during protests last year. morsi was kicked out of office by the egyptian military. that was in july. no trial date has been set. >> at 351 square miles a fire burning in and around yosemite national park is the fourth largest fire in california's history. that is an area larger than
the cities of san francisco, oakland and san jose combined. the two-week-old fire is still growing at this point. it is only 45% contained. flames also threatening the original house and the land from the tv show "little house on the prairie" we all watched. the remote ranch sits close to the northwestern end of the rim fire. a real life ingalls family lives on that land and refuses to evacuate fearing they will lose everything they own. >> extreme weather alert. flash floods in nevada wipe out vehicles and damage homes. officials say recent fires allowed the water rush down -- or allowed the water to rush down with nothing to hold it back. residents came home to roads that were completely washed out. >> a rushing river. it was all the way across the road. it was five feet deep all the way across the road, and just it was coming down through this yard here, the
neighbors' yard, through their garage. now i know what a flash flood looks like. >> nobody was hurt but officials say it could take days to clean up that mess. for more on the flooding and the rest of your labor day forecast, we turn to janice dean. >> here we are labor day laboring away. good to see you. taking a look at the map today where we have showers and thunderstorms in the forecast, both coasts really could see the potential for some heavy downpours. central u.s. looks pretty good but the west and parts of the east coast unfortunately going to be dealing with the potential for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. if you have plans, make sure you have a backup plan. taking a look at where we're still seeing the potential for some showers and thunderstorms across the west, and you mentioned flash flooding across nevada, they received in some areas even four inches of rain. for the desert area, this is pretty significant. a lot of rain in a short period of time and the ground can't absorb it. taking a look at your labor
